A short but gripping story that doesn't stop being enjoyable from start to finish.

Haru's Curse is a story about an older sister who starts going out with her dead sister's fiancee.... Its fucked up. Their "shouldn't they" relationship is Haru's Curse.

The series in enveloped in this dense atmosphere as both the main characters feel guilty for there actions but can't stop themselves from doing it either. Despite this thick atmosphere, there is moments of lighthearted playfulness. Cracks in the manga to make sure the manga's tone never overwhelms the reader. The manga is engaging and entertaining and with only 8 chapters i can really only say so much. Except the fact that i really liked this series. This is one of the few series i have actually re-read.

The characters personality are also fantastic. No one is ok. Everyone thinks they are depraved, and you can really see it on the characters faces. I like the fact that the series actually takes itself super seriously. So when the big reveal actually does happen there is actual weight and pressure. Its also nice for the characters to actually have to live with the consequences of there decision rather than everything being ok

Despite my praise this series does suffer from 1 thing. I thought when the FMC finds the information of her sister i thought was a little too convenient. but even with this hiccup this is probably one of the better series i have read this year.

Congratulations to KONISHI Asuka this is the first series i have given an 8/10 this year.

I can not wait until this is in stores! As it's one of my absolute favorite manga's. One of the best psychological stories I've read in a long time and it hits all the right spots.

It's shorter than the series I usually read, but it's complete in its storytelling. Bittersweet but optimistic in its unfolding and ending. The three main characters were really likeable, and I love that none of them were perfect.
I don't think I'll ever forget this particular story.

Honestly, I read the other story of the mangaka and I have to say that I love her works. The way she tells the story, the way she makes the plot go on is simple perfectly done. You get to see a little bit of every character and it might see something light but it gets deeper. Enjoyed this story.

Different take on a oft-repeated storyline

The main character falling for his/her sibling's love interest is a plot line that is not unique. What IS unique is the way the author handled the romance- here the main characters did not rush headlong into love (although the premise of their "dates" was weird) and
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
dying sister is actually concerned about her love interest moving on in life and worse......moving on with her sister. Other stories with similar plot have usually have a "mary-sue" like character who actively encourage their siblings and fiancé to fall in love with one another. I find such characters very irritating not mention unrealistic.
So it was great to see the mangaka deal with such a situation more realistically. My only issue with this story was the reason why she wanted to go with the ML on their dates-- the reasoning weirded me out. But all in all, worth reading IMHO.

Realistic but Sweet Story

One of the best romance and psychological manga I've ever read. it is short but the after taste of bittersweet is lingering for a long time. It has a heavy theme and sweet tanginess of 'sinful' love. I love the realistic and mature ending.

First few chapters were interesting and kept my focus captivated, but towards the end of this series I wanted just that... to find out the end already. On a side note, I found some of the characters words hard to understand, and had to reread a few times to get the point- possibly could be because I wasn’t able to relate to the characters... might give it another shot in the future.

This was such a great manga with a unique plot and good storytelling. I'm just a little upset over the abrupt ending (ch 8). Ch 7 ended so well and I was sad that it ended with too much of an open ending for me. I still really enjoyed it though! Would have been at least a 8 or 9/10.

I can't, really. Is one of my favorite mangas, along with Berserker and Noragami. Is really good, psychological, heavy, makes you think. I just cannot proprerly express myself about this awesome manga. Is kind of depressing, but it was its sweet moments. Give it a try, pleaseee

Dark, but not necessarily sad

This is a truly charming manga. The ambientation seems darker than other mangas, but sweet at the same time. Its all about feeling and the ability to express them. So the atmosphere is always so charge, being able to transmit what the character feels, I think.
The main character is strong and independent, caring deeply for her sister, and the main guy can be a mistery even to himself.

It does reminds me of Woman Best Friend (Webtoon by Dodam and Hyun Sung Lee)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
because both main characters are strong and care deeply for their sister, while their sister is ill and the male lead doesn't show his feelings, but cares deeply for the main girl.
But Haru no noroi has a different feeling.
